Last year, I took a marvelous trip with my boyfriend to the City of Light.
Between days walking the city and nights strolling the Seine, it was a trip of enchantment.
In one of our Sunday morning walks, we entered a maze of a flea market where I came across Joe, a merchant from West Africa. I think Joe knew I was not especially skilled in the art of negotiating, in French, with a wily bead trader. Or at least that's what I told myself after the initial flush of triumph faded and I counted how few Euros were left in my wallet.
But as it turns out, the beads I bought in Paris are worth far more than I realized -- they're magic. As soon as I put them on, I feel happy. It's that simple and that delightful. Who doesn't want a little magic in their life?
This feel-good, globe trotting necklace showcases grooved, vintage silver metal beads in conversation with indigo and recycled sea-foam glass, black & white ceramic, and clay, brought together with a vintage brass clasp. Featuring beads from all over the globe -- Africa, by way of France, Italy, and of course, Brooklyn -- you might say this necklace is a unique, one-of-a-kind personal passport to style.
